First, find a reliable, well established company to do the installation. You may need to do a little research to find the best company. Read reviews online, and ask friends and neighbors for recommendations. In Richmond, VA you will repeatedly hear the name Borum. Borum Heating and Air has been providing quality service to Richmond and the surrounding area since 1996. Our technicians are well trained and have experience with installation of all brands and models of furnaces. We do both residential and commercial installations.

When you choose Borum for your furnace installation, we will assess your home or office building to determine the best brand and model for the space. We personally recommend Rheem Comfort Systems above all others, though we carry and install other brands as well. We will be sure to install the correct sized system based on the square footage of the building. A system that is too big or too small can cause all sorts of issues and will not keep your home or office warm and comfortable. Our technicians have the experience necessary to install your furnace properly the first time. The performance of your furnace is dependent upon proper installation. Faulty installation results in frequent repairs, poor performance, and low efficiency. One of the most important parts of installation is the ductwork. If the ducts are not installed correctly or are the wrong size, it will negatively affect the performance of your furnace. If ducts are not properly sealed, warm air is lost and cold air can get in. There are so many important aspects of furnace installation that it is absolutely necessary that a properly trained technician do the job.

After installation, in order to get the best performance and the most years out of your furnace, routine maintenance is necessary. Borum Heating and Air offers maintenance packages for the upkeep of your furnace. A technician will perform a yearly multi-point inspection of your system as well as a thorough cleaning and tune-up. Routine maintenance packages will save you more money than they will ever cost you up front. Keeping your furnace well-tuned will reduce your energy costs significantly. And a well-maintained furnace will need fewer repairs in the future.

Be sure it is set to the desired temperature and that it is set to heat. You may need to turn the desired temperature up a few degrees to see if the system comes on.
